Title

Progress on MARGIE, a Gamma-Ray Burst Ultra-long Duration Balloon Mission

Abstract

We are designing the Minute of Arc Resolution Gamma-ray Imaging Experiment (MARGIE) as a 100 day Ultra Long Duration Balloon (ULDB) mission to: a) detect and localize gamma-ray bursts; and b) survey the hard X-ray sky. Major advances in designing the CZT detectors increase the senstitivity to higher energy. Design of the gondola has also progressed.
